Fantastic setting; poor & indifferent service; food very average

One of the best settings in the valley for a Bistro / Tapas Bar, this restaurant needs either a complete makeover, a radical attitude change or new owners. Over the years I've experienced it from "very good" /"good" all the way to poor & back again. Right now, for me it's in the "poor" category... read more

Unbelievable setting , overpriced bland corner cafe food. There were 4 of us looking at spending a great afternoon together catching up in the stunning vineyard setting. There were 4 tables and service was nonexistent. The food was very, very average and very over priced for what we were served.

We always enjoy the friendly service and good food at Pastis. Nothing better to sit outside on a beautiful summers night, enjoying a glass of wine and good food with good company and music.

This place remains about the Baer location in the valley with the worst food. It is never clean and generally is not at all good. To be avoided.

Very nice to sit outside with plenty of shade. The service was very good, the waitress was very friendly and helpful when we noticed we had a wobbly table, which was sorted out immediately. Would recommend this restaurant.

I've eaten here once before, and found it pleasant, but nothing particularly special or memorable. On a beautiful summer's night sitting outside and taking in the incredible views adds an extra 10 points to the experience. The patrons are a very interesting, eclectic bunch, with many overseas visitors staying in the area over the season, regular locals with dogs in... More

My wife and I had a reasonable light dinner here in early January . It just didn't stand out in any way in comparison to other places in the Constantia area
